Ama Ristorante, open to the public year round, features an award-winning menu filled with Tuscan-inspired dishes paired with a Wine Spectator award-winning wine. Executive Chef Chuck Lesbirel’s menu of seasonally inspired specialties uses only the highest quality ingredients from local and global sources and is served with true Italian hospitality. The restaurant, which is right on the beach, commands a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean and sunsets over the Shrewsbury River from the second level of Driftwood Cabana Club, a mainstay of the Jersey Shore since 1957. Inside guests will find a romantic, comfortable setting similar to a Tuscan seaside villa with rich earthy tones, cozy dining areas and outdoor dining on its deck. There is also a popular full service bar with 4 big screen TVs serving ingredient-driven cocktails, draft beer and premium wines by the glass and bottle. Complimentary valet parking is available nightly.
